SHINee Interview Elle Girl Korea June 2011 – Onew

SHINee Interview Elle Girl Korea June 2011 – (2) Onew

During the interview and photoshoot session, Onew seemed to be observing the environment leisurely. He would not take the center stage but offer his support whenever there were any shortages or problems. In comparison with magnae Taemin’s flower-like smile or with statuesque Minho’s killer smile, Onew’s trademark “Ahahaha” laughter is never inferior. Is this SHINee’s leader Onew’s leading style?

“Instead of telling members to do this and that, I tend to listen (to them). They are doing well on their own path already (laugh).”

Approaching the 4th year of SHINee since debut, many things have changed, but he says, most of all, he himself has changed.

“Through activities as SHINee, my personality has changed a lot. I may say I’ve become more out-going. Compared to before, I’m now more willing to approach people and initiate conversations with them, so I feel good (about my change).”

Whilst SHINee establishes themselves as a talented group in the industry, the market has expanded with lots of new groups debuting. How does he feel when he watches them as a ‘sunbae’ (senior)?

“Currently I’m MC-ing for a program, I see the new groups become younger and younger, and think to myself, Were we like them too? They all look quite good these days.”

In addition to MC-ing, Onew has challenged himself in Musicals, and has made a lot of good outcomes. But it is likely that he will concentrate on SHINee’s overseas activities for the time being. I asked if he didn’t feel stressed out with or afraid of their upcoming Japan activities?

“We’ve had several performances in Japan already. I just wish we could laugh a lot. I’d like to communicate with our fans and enjoy our activities.”

Onew is well recognized for his entertaining sense excellent to the extent he was seated not with guests but with the panelists in Happy Together. Will his entertaining sense work in Japan too?

“Actually, I’m not sure if it is going to work. If I throw a lot, then a few will hit the mark, haha. Want to prepare a unique self-introduction. Something like “I am Onew who is rarely startled watching scary movies”? (Really?) I am startled inside but don’t flinch, so people do not know.”

Onew says he forgets immediately even when he has some trouble, sleeps when he feels down, and sings songs he likes when he feels happy. He answered calmly (questions) about his everyday life as if his life were not so different from that of others. He says he doesn’t really mind how people evaluate or see him.

“I hope they take me (as I am) comfortably rather than telling me this or that. As I do so.”

A 23 year old idol who doesn’t show vanity as a star nor look impatient at all as a man in early 20s. There seems to be something that will surprise us hiding under his calm and composed look.

    Bruno Mars Just The Way You Are – revised lyrics to match how I feel about SHINee’s Onew

    Oh his eyes, his eyes
    Make the stars look like they’re not shining
    His hair, his hair
    Falls perfectly without him trying

    He’s so beautiful
    And I tell him every day

    Yeah I know, I know
    When I compliment him
    He won’t believe me
    And its so, it’s so
    Sad to think he don’t see what I see

    But every time he asks me do I look okay
    I say

    When I see your face
    There’s not a thing that I would change
    Cause you’re amazing
    Just the way you are
    And when you smile,
    The whole world stops and stares for awhile
    Cause boy you’re amazing
    Just the way you are

    His lips, his lips
    I could kiss them all day if he’d let me
    His laugh, his laugh
    He hates but I think it’s so sexy

    He’s so beautiful
    And I tell him every day

    Oh you know, you know, you know
    Id never ask you to change
    If perfect is what you’re searching for
    Then just stay the same

    So don’t even bother asking
    If you look okay
    You know I say

    When I see your face
    There’s not a thing that I would change
    Cause you’re amazing
    Just the way you are
    And when you smile,
    The whole world stops and stares for awhile
    Cause boy you’re amazing
    Just the way you are

    The way you are
    The way you are
    Boy you’re amazing
    Just the way you are

    When I see your face
    There’s not a thing that I would change
    Cause you’re amazing
    Just the way you are
    And when you smile,
    The whole world stops and stares for awhile
    Cause boy you’re amazing
    Just the way you are
